Visions Art Museum’s Saturday, January 17th’s reception of the exhibit Expressions In Equality was outstanding. 23 pieces (each different and inspiring) were on display (until April 4th). How honored I am to be part of this exhibit. Thanks to curator Sheila Frampton Cooper for asking us all to participate.
As promised here is a full view of my piece “Common Threads” which was inspired by Dr. Maya Angelou’s quote: “We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.”
My piece is on the cover of 8 page gallery guide featuring the 23 artists in the show.
Below is a link to the gallery guide shown above with photos, artist names, and prices for work in the exhibit. It is a “must see” exhibit if you can visit San Diego before April 4th, and if not this guide will be the next best substitute.

I am one of 23 invited artists exploring equality themes in Expressions In Equality exhibit curated by Sheila Frampton-Cooper. How excited I am to be attending the opening reception Saturday January 17th 5-7pm at Vision’s Art Museum in San Diego from 5-7pm.
My piece Common Threads was inspired by a quote by Dr. Maya Angelou: “We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry all equal in value no matter what their color.”
Using a palette of black, white, grey on a red/black background; I created abstracted hand embroidered figures to represent the vast human diverse tapestry Dr. Angelou speaks of.
Here is a detail image, I cannot share full view until after reception. More photos to come from the reception in next post.
